Branch information

Covering Brixham, Paignton and Torquay areas, we organise fundraising activities such as monthly coffee mornings, themed talks, market stalls/fayres. Our biggest fundraising event is our Summer Fundraising week in August, with fundraising events around Torbay all week and culminating in our Torbay Lifeboat Station.

We are always looking for new fundraising ideas, so if you would like to be involved we would love to hear from you.

We are an extremely active fundraising team, holding at least two fundraising events every month of the year, so we constantly seek helpers.

If you can help please get in touch, even one hour per month makes a difference!

We often have other specific role vacancies so if you would like to do something truly worthwhile with your free time, please contact us.

Current vacancies:

  • Retail Kiosk Manager (RNLI shop opposite Torbay Lifeboat Station)

  • Catering team assistants

Our committee meet monthly at the Brixham Rugby club, with additional ad-hoc meetings throughout the year with our Torbay Lifeboat Management Group and local supporters.

We hold our AGM in March.
